Google My Maps to Garmin
« on: January 01, 2012, 02:48:45 PM »
Hi there,
I've been looking for tutorials and howto guides for a long time.
I've tried a bunch of programs and still can't find a solution to my problem.

I've draw a personal map in Google Maps, with shapes, lines and placemarks.
Now i would like to put that map in my Garmin Montana 650.

I have the KML file from Google Maps and i've converted to different types of files but can't get the result i want.

Can anyone please help me?
Thanks


Btw: sorry for any "bad english"

What programs have you tried? I'd suggest looking at GPSTrackMaker, DNRGarmin, OKMap and GPSBabel. Just opened a KML MyMaps files in OKMap, and it looked good.

If you want a Garmin map (IMG), the more easy way is to convert your data in KML to GPX with GPSBabel and then use GPS2IMG.
